What were the best, worst, most surprising, and most intriguing moves this NBA offseason? Crossover staff weigh in.

What was the best move of the offseason?

Howard Beck: Rudy Gobert’s trade – and I’m not talking about the Minnesota side (although I liked that too). I know, “best move” usually implies “best acquisition”. But I’m going with Utah’s decision to cash in on Gobert for all those draft picks. It was bold and risky and will send the Jazz into the NBA cellar for the foreseeable future. But it was necessary. The Gobert-Mitchell era had become obsolete. There were no more advantages or avenues to improve. Taking down a 50-win team is tough. I admire the decision and the spoils.
